Steve Persaud, 21, of Belle Plaine, Wakenaam, Essequibo River was stabbed on New Year’s Day after declining to repair a motorcycle.

The police say that enquiries disclosed that at about 7.30 pm, the victim and others were sitting under their house when the suspect approached Persaud and asked him to repair a motorcycle throttle cable.

“The victim refused and as a result an argument ensued.

He also received a bite to his left thigh in the ensuing melee”, the police said.

The victim then fell to the ground where he was later picked up in a conscious state and rushed to the Wakenaam Cottage Hospital where he was seen, examined, treated. He was then referred to the Suddie Public Hospital for further medical attention.

The matter was reported to the police at 7:45 pm and the suspect was arrested and placed into custody.
